Win a guide to Kruger Self-Drive – Routes, Roads & Ratings

Kruger Self-Drive by Heinrich van den Berg This prize draw is now closed.

To celebrate our new partnership with Somak Holidays, the African safari specialists, this month’s book competition, from Kodansha, representing HPH Publishing, is to win a beautifully illustrated guide to self-drive through South Africa’s glorious Kruger National Park by Heinrich van den Berg, which covers nearly 2 million hectares and has very good roads.

Combine these stunning drives, which are perfect to give you the freedom to visit exactly which areas you want, with stays at Somak’s luxurious 5-star camps or lodges and you really will have the holiday of a lifetime. Think Out of Africa and then some: Garonga Safari Camp, for example, offers amazing tented accommodation, each offering a private terrace with hammock and indoor and outdoor shower. Or Imbali Safari Lodge, which is delightfully colonial in style, and provides exceptional wildlife viewing opportunities, due to the waterhole close by.   

To win a copy of this book, please tell us in the comments section or on the forum thread about a self-drive holiday you have been on or would like to take. 

The competition ends on 30 November 2016 and the prize winner will be advised early in December.
